In this year of Hecate, the goddess of relationships and liminal spaces, it becomes auspicious as to why I wait this year and receive this love gift. For one, despite being marked to be a high priestess of the faith had I been born in an era where that practice is no longer honored as needed. So I have to adapt. And there is some value to this experience on the physical plane. I look forward to it. I am learning that I am a walking catalyst and I do have a power radius. It is tighter and attached to my voice. Why people who talk to me stay silent or get excited. Nice to think about it.
But that brings me to my thought today- friendship maintenance. My guide through this part of my quest for self reached out the other day when I was thinking about how my gift will manifest in the world and she mentioned her new cards coming. So I was surprised that I would get a set soon. I am looking forward to May for different reasons now. But last night, I was thinking about my wait and doubt seeped in from the person sitting next to me. It was strange. It was the second time during my awakening that a person or place made my mental ideas shift. It makes me think that my mate is attuned to people this way and why tsunami needs my presence. I don’t leak into the world that way.
I went home to smoke cleanse myself for the first time since the full moon. Usually when on public transportation, I am blessed with no one in the seat next to me. A warning that with my barriers shifting, my empathy aspect is going to wake up eventually.
This experience made me think about following up with my guide and see how she was protecting herself after reading so many people the same day. And low and behold, she needed someone to talk to. It was interesting to see how magic on the island is quick to manifest. She had a fight with a pillar relationship in her chosen circle and it hurt her spirit. And as a guide, she does not often get a person to go to when she is shaken. Mind you, I was looking to cement a lunch date but my needs could wait while she vented. She needed some guidance and a mind shift from the disagreement from evolving into a curse on the relationship.
It reminded me to reach out to some of my people who help me out and keep me aligned with the journey I am on. The good ones and bad ones too. I keep some mixed bag people around as a warning to appreciate the good ones and to know if I am doing wrong.
But it made me think about being a high functioning individual with problems. What is your self-care routine to keep you safe? How do you practice gratitude? Why do we take it for granted? It has been mentioned in several different media platforms that presidential contender Bernie Sanders doesn’t share this trait, the same as our current commander in chief, and that should bother people.
It bothers me.
